Buffalo Wild Wings stop selling eggs from battery cages

As a die-hard sports fan, one of my favorite things to do is to watch my Philadelphia Flyers defeat their opponents on the ice. If I’m not at the game itself, I am definitely watching on television. In the last few years, my friends and I have made Buffalo Wild Wings one of our most preferred sports-bars to check out the games. Although, this is no longer the case after recently learning Buffalo Wild Wings supports animal cruelty for no apparent reason. I recently learned about how Buffalo Wild Wings confines its egg-laying chickens to battery cages. I was shocked to learn of this practice and how awful it is for egg-laying hens. These birds are actually confined so tight in a cage where they are not afforded enough space to even extend their own limbs. I’m not cool with supporting such abuse to animals and I don’t know anyone else who is either. After learning of Buffalo Wild Wing’s support for battery-cages, I did some clicking around online, and I learned most major franchises around the United States are phasing out these cages from their supply chains. A few examples are: McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Denny’s, TGI Friday’s, and Subway. So what makes Buffalo Wild Wings any different than these other power-house corporations? I’m a normal guy and like any other normal guy, I eat at Buffalo Wild Wings. But not anymore. Not after learning Buffalo Wild Wings’ gross method of how it gets its eggs! This franchise is literally supporting the caging of animals, and if I wouldn’t let it happen to my dog Sophie, then I’m not going to support it with my money. Please sign my petition urging Buffalo Wild Wings to end its support of farms that cage egg-laying hens.

Join the fight against slavery in the U.S. tomato industry!

A campanha abaixo foi criada por uma organização internacional e está em inglês. Mas achamos que você gostaria de assiná-la. Berikut kampanye dan organisasi yang berbahasa Inggris, namun kami berpikir bahwa Anda mungkin tertarik bergabung masuk. Florida’s tomato farms supply 50% of all U.S. fresh tomatoes  but have also been called America’s ‘ground zero for slavery.’ Countless workers held against their will, threatened with violence and forced to haul hundreds of heavy tomato buckets a day for little to no pay. Thankfully, a new solution called the Fair Food Program has been proven successful. The Fair Food Program is working to enforce a policy of zero tolerance for slavery on tomato farms. But a major U.S. supermarket chain, Publix Super Markets, is refusing to support the Fair Food Program. Publix continues to buy tomatoes from growers that are not partners of the Fair Food Program and where workers still toil beyond the reach of its proven protection from modern slavery. Will Publix Super Markets, which prides itself on making Fortune’s ‘Best Companies to Work For’ list, continue to turn a blind eye and give excuses, or will it leverage its vast market influence and lead the way in cleaning up slavery in the tomato supply chain once and for all? Tell Publix to make the right decision to join the Fair Food Program and ensure our tomatoes meet the highest human rights standards in the food industry today.

Stop New Parking Garage Fees at Reston Town Center

KEEP PARKING FREE AT RTC! That new outfit, meal or movie at Reston Town Center is about to get more expensive. Sign the petition to oppose the paid parking garage and spread the word - #RTCparkingfee After years of talking about it, Reston Town Center is slated to change to a paid parking garage system. Most likely by August, RTC garages will start using an app-based system called Park RTC, said RTC spokeswoman Marion Myers. RTC claims there are too many commuter and Dulles airport parkers who are taking up valuable parking spots, and points to the Metro opening in 2020 as the reason to convert the free garages to a pay-to-park system. But in nearby Tysons Corner where there is an adjacent Metro station with no designated Metro parking, there are no plans to charge money for parking. Tysons has handled the commuter issue by having gates to the garages that open after 9:30 unless you have a passcard (as a Mall employee, etc).  What will it cost to park and who will be affected? EVERYONE will pay to park, even retail and restaurant employees. Rates will be: Public Hourly: Maximum 24-hour charge of $24 Public monthly: A pass can be purchased for $70 a month Corporate employees:  free to up to $70 a month (depending on if there is an office subsidy) Retail owners: $70 a month Retail employees: $50 a month. Part time workers can share an account
